    With an interesting mix of rock and power pop, Blinker the Star has been able to forge a name for itself within the music community since the band's 1995 self-titled debut. AUGUST EVERYWHERE is the band's third album and its first for Dreamworks Records. The material feels the influence of some classic pop songwriters--"Pretty Pictures" sounds like classic ELO while "On This Earth" sounds like it could pass as a lost Beatles track. Some of the other tracks that shine are "September Already," "The Star Behind the Star," and "Right Kind of Girl," which has a songwriting texture not unlike the work of Elliot Smith.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (9/30/99, p.87) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...surround-sound arena rock, a collection of smart arrangements brimming with evocative lines and hard-to-shake choruses..."
    Spin (11/99, p.194) - 8 out of 10 - "...the last native tongue of a museum tribe: guitar-scored elaborations on a lost theme, lovely as they are irrelevant...utterly pleasurable because the stakes are so low you can't get under them....It's just music. Exactly. Copacetic. Poignant."
    Alternative Press (10/99, p.80) - 3 out of 5 - "...long rumored as heir to [Kurt] Cobain's throne....AUGUST EVERYWHERE proves [Jordon Zadorozny] has the musical chops for the role..."
